This week I didn’t read that much. I read about 50 pages in Seraphina and read about 20 pages in Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls. Next week I will read more and have the review for Seraphina up. I have been very busy with schoolwork lately, so that is why there has been a lack of posting. I am trying my hardest to get back on a regular posting schedule.

I went to an auction today, and found a small bag with a Gameboy Advance, a Gameboy Color, six Pokemon games and about six random games. I bid on it, and got it for $42. I have started playing the Pokemon Pikachu Edition on the Gameboy Advance and it’s so much fun. Pokemon is definitely still my favorite game, and I’m definitely planning on bringing it with me on my Florida trip!

Hello, hello. This week has been very busy, but fun. On Thursday I had a dance audition for the audition piece we do in recital, and I got in! We had the learning day today from 1:00-6:00 and it was very tiring. I’m very excited, though. I didn’t do a lot of reading this week, but I will finish Seraphina next week and start the Shadow Scale. On the 26th of February marked one year of my boyfriend and I dating. It was really awesome because he got me a cherry pie (my favorite thing ever because who doesn’t love cherry) and I got him a Tim Howard book. Of course it was a book, but he loves Tim Howard. He was on the American soccer team, but moved to England and is now on the Everton team. My boyfriend’s favorite team is Everton, and he’s a goalie just like Tim Howard. My school’s semi formal was yesterday so we went to dinner first and then went to the dance. We looked really nice and all fancy. ‘Twas a great time. HARRY POTTER WORLD IS HAPPENING IN ABOUT TWO WEEKS!!! I am so excited. So so so excited. Ahhh!

Happy Sunday! It’s currently about 3 1/2 weeks until I go to Florida for my music trip for school! That means that I get to see The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando. *happy dance* Other than that exciting news, I have read a lot today. I felt guilty for my obsession with Dance Academy on Netflix, so I read quite a bit in Seeker. I was supposed to have Seeker finished at the beginning of the month for NetGalley, but hey. Stuff came up. I’m still reading it. I don’t really like it that much. Some parts are really good; the beginning was awesome. But the middle/endish parts are just pointless. There is so much going on that didn’t need to happen. For book club we just started Let’s Explore Diabetes With Owls and it’s very odd. I don’t really like it, but some parts are funny. It’s just about this guy telling his life stories in short story format. I just found out that I accidentally order a Hungarian version of a book on my Nook. It was $12 and there are no refunds. I can’t read it… ugh.

A lot has happened this week, and some of it relating to books. I finished The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. If you haven’t checked out my review, you should do so. If you’ve not read this book, you should DEFINITELY do so. It was an awesome book, just putting that out there. I made a lot of progress in Clockwork Angel, so that’s always fun. I was contacted by an author who asked me to read his book and I’m very excited about it. It sounds like an amazing book, but I don’t want to give it away. Stay posted for my review of it coming in the next couple weeks. I have a bunch of review books that I have to read, but on top of the author contacting me, Radiant Books contacted me to read and review a book of theirs. I am very excited, but am getting a little worried as to when I will finish all of these books. Oh well, I’ll make it work. I’m still currently reading Seeker, which I got from NetGalley and didn’t finish in time. I will finish that one after finishing Clockwork Angel. Anything amazing happen to you? Have you read any great books lately?

This week I finished Just One Year and didn’t love it, sadly. I read the portion I had to of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd for book club, and got a little further in the book Seeker. I am supposed to have the review for Seeker up by Tuesday, but I highly doubt that is going to happen. I got it for review from NetGalley, so I will try and have it finished. I’m about 30% through it, so I’ll make some progress on it tomorrow. I had a dance audition on Friday, so I left school early to go to it. It went really well, and I’m proud of how I did. I have a history test and a biology test both on Tuesday, so I’ll be studying for both of those. In the next week I plan to finish Seeker, Clockwork Angel, and The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. I’m going to try and read a lot this week, because I haven’t had a lot of reviews up lately. Other than that, nothing much has happened. Anything wonderful happen to you this weekend?

Happy Super Bowl Sunday! Did the team you wanted to win end up winning the game? I wanted the Seahawks to win, but I’m over it now. This week I’ve read some of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd for book club, and am almost finished with Just One Year. I know I said that I would have a review of Just One Year up this week, but I just didn’t have time. Next week (as in tomorrow’s week) I get to have a massage on Tuesday. Praise the Lord. I need a massage so badly. Dancer muscles get so sore. Anywho, then on Friday I get to go and audition for a summer dance intensive. I’m really excited because I’ve not had an actual audition with people I don’t know. Very excited for the next week :)

Hello, hello. Happy end of the week. Tomorrow second semester officially starts; dreading it, but looking forward to it at the same time. I haven’t read that much in the past couple of weeks, but I am going to try and finish a couple books this week. I am banning myself from Netflix and YouTube, so I’ll read more. I am currently reading The Murder of Roger Ackroyd for book club, Just One Year, and Clockwork Angel. My goal is to finish Just One Year and Clockwork Angel because I just need to. So, honestly I don’t have much to talk about! With the new semester comes a new class. Lifetime Sports. Hmm. Just digest that for a second… I am not sporty. At all. It’s a miracle that I can play soccer. I hate running. I have no hand-eye coordination. It’s going to be a mess. Ooh. Very nervous for that class. Wish me luck. Please… or prayers. Or both.
